Inter Milan yet to bid for Spurs midfielder Eriksen, says Mourinho

17 January 2020

Jose Mourinho says Inter Milan have yet to bid for Christian Eriksen and that the midfielder will play against Watford on Saturday.

Reports suggested the Denmark international, who is in the last six months of his contract, was close to a move to the Serie A side, with his agent in Milan to broker a deal during the current transfer window.

Mourinho, though, said Spurs have not even received an official offer as the situation looks set to rumble on.

“You have to ask the agent and Inter Milan because they know more than me,” Mourinho said.

“If they are confident, they are confident because they are ready to make us an offer, which didn’t happen yet.

“So when I see people speaking, especially people with responsibilities speaking about it, I am a little bit surprised. That’s all I can say.

“I think it’s normal that until January 31 his brain is not totally in focus. I think it’s a normal consequence of the situation.

“I think it’s normal that a player doesn’t know very well what is going on, but I still don’t understand that optimism because, in this moment, for a few matches people are speaking about is Eriksen going?

“Eriksen played his last match for the club, and the situation didn’t change, Eriksen plays tomorrow.”
